As the Dolphins and Bengals play Thursday night this week, Miami released its first injury report of the week on Monday afternoon.
Because the Dolphins didn’t practice on Monday, the injury report is an estimate. However, the protector Tua Tagovailoa would not train with back and ankle injuries.
Earlier Monday, head coach Mike McDaniel said Tagovailoa had a headache. And that he wasn’t actually sure how Tagovialoa would react during the week and whether the quarterback would be available on Thursday.
“This is my first match on Thursday night with Tua, so I’m not up to anything,” McDaniel said at his Monday press conference. “But it was not something of the extreme norm in the form of bumps and bruises after the game. But as far as I can access my crystal ball, right now it’s broken. That’s one of the reasons you have a list of capable people, and that’s why we brought in Teddy. [Bridgewater] Here’s Skylar sketched [Thompson] You have to be prepared for these kinds of adjustments. And just like Teddy was ready in the game, we will be ready for whatever we have to face in the future.”
offensive tackle Terron Armstead (sock), cornerback Xavien Howard (groin/buttocks), narrow end Clear Carter (concussion), offensive lineman Rob Hunt (shin), safety Brandon Jones (chest), narrow end Hunter Long (ankle) and receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) would not have practiced either.
Edge Rusher Melvin Ingram also would not engage because of the rest.
Protective tackle Raekwon Davis (knee), safety Jevon Holland (neck), defender Kohow frame (ankle), offensive hold Greg Little (finger), defender Zach Seeler (arm) and receiver Cedric Wilson (ribs/toe_ would be limited.
